Miami Proposal Ideas With a Beautiful View

South Pointe Park 

South Pointe Park is an urban park with sweeping views of South Beach’s shoreline, as well as Fisher Island and Downtown Miami. First, take a moment for a stroll with your loved one. Then, soak in the view and propose at sunset. Afterward you can have a picnic on the lawn or head over to a restaurant like Smith and Wollensky for a higher-end celebration. Additionally, as a surprise, you can invite friends and family for a party to celebrate your big day!

Fruit and Spice Park

Imagine exploring groves of exotic, tropical fruits like guavas and papayas with your significant other. Then see yourself proposing against the backdrop of 500 varieties of fruit, spices, herbs, and nuts at this 37-acre Miami-Dade County park. The foodie in your spouse-to-be will be thrilled with your choice, and you’ll thank yourself for choosing one of the best places for your proposal.

The rules at the park are that while you can’t pick from the trees, fallen fruit is fair game. Following your proposal, enjoy a treat like a piece of mango passion cheesecake at The Mango Café.
